Cloudflare’s Heartbleed Challenge (Update: Solved)

CloudFlare recently claimed that although serious the Heartbleed bug could not be used to successfully hoover up the site’s private key. They have put up an intentionally vulnerable site, challenging the security community to prove that key theft via this bug is possible.

UPDATE: within a few hours two people had independently stolen the private key. So much for their contention that the threat posed by Heartbleed was overrated.
